Des & newbies,
Would it be of value to collate a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) for the
NEW-DISTILLERS newsgroup, and post this say monthly ?
If so, what sort of questions/answers should it have ?
I'm thinking along the lines of ....
Is distilling hard to do ?
Is it legal ?
Will it make me blind ?
Whats the difference between a pot still, reflux still, and fractionating
How do I get or make a still ?
How do i make a whisky / rum / vodka ?
Should i use sugar or grains ?
Can I use fruit wine ?
How do i get rid of that "off-taste" ?
How do i measure the strength of it & dilute it ?
How do i flavour/turn the vodka's into something else ?
What web resources are there ?
Not too much on any of these (gees - this is how I first intended my site -
but it kept growing), maybe just a simple/clear paragraph on each, but a
bit of a starting point before heading into the advanced stuff & the
regular DISTILLERS news group. Deliberately avoid too much detail on
building stills & all the combinations thereof because this is where it can
get confusing, but just touch on the basics.
Any comments ?
